Ask A Doctor Question:
I had Lasik surgery about 8 years ago. I am not sure what my eyesight was but my contact prescriptions were 6.25 in my left eye and 4.50 in my right. After having the surgery my left eye was close to 20/20 but not perfect like my right eye, which was 20/20 . I went back in for a revision shortly after the first surgery. Fast forward to today. My left eye is getting blurry again after many years of sitting in front of a computer. My right eye is still perfect. My day starts out ok then toward the end of the day everything is blurry out of that eye unless I am squinting. Should I go back for another revision? I don't want to mess up my eye sight. I was thinking of just going in to get contact and glasses again and only wearing them on a "as needed basis"- Brian
